Dayton Ohio Area Pale Orange/White Circular Light in Night Sky.

I was finishing a walk of the block with my dog and was thinking about walking her a bit farther down a street running to the south so turned to look down that street and noticed the light from what I assumed was a plane flying high above treetop level to the south. Living in one of the flight paths sometimes used by the Dayton International Airport, I didn't think much of it until I realized (as I waited for my dog to finish sniffing the ground) it didn't appear to be moving either horizontally or any closer or farther away. I watched the light and there was only a solid, steady pale orange glow -- the blinking lights I anticipated would appear never did. Maybe most noticeable was the total absence of sound that always accompanies the aircraft I see at this approximate distance. I did see a flight cross in the distance from west to east, its lights appearing smaller indicating it was probably either smaller or farther away than whatever it was I had noticed! which remained stationary as the aircraft passed behind it to the south; the aircraft was easily identifiable by the blinking of its lights. The brightness of this light varied just slightly in intensity, getting a bit brighter or growing more dim for a few seconds. The color remained the same. It never seemed to move, but I glanced down at my dog for a second, looked up, and it was gone.
